Recapping June

I like a good monthly recap; I have a planner/journal that I use and I like to assess and take stock of the previous month before I start with the next one, to see what I’ve done so that I can appropriately decide what I plan to do coming up. This works well for me…… Continue reading Recapping June

Triumph: A Return to the blogosphere

Today’s Daily Post one-word prompt is Triumph, so I find it a little serendipitous that this is the day I decide to take a deep breath and jump back into blogging – my own little triumph.

Sunshine Blogger Award!

Being nominated for a blog award is always a lovely feeling. I can understand why some bloggers don’t go in for them, but personally I feel glad to be thought of. The amazing Christa of A Voluptuous Mind, half of my favourite film-reviewing duo, nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger award the other day! Thank…… Continue reading Sunshine Blogger Award!

2015 in (belated) review!

I think these review-y things are cool, so I posted mine. That was pretty much my motivation for this post! Here’s an excerpt: A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,700 times in 2015. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to…… Continue reading 2015 in (belated) review!
